How does this organization make a difference?

Impact statement

From our 2012 Annual Report: We have found new homes for 5,388 pets, of which 2,000 were transferred from San Antonio's open intake shelter (Animal Care Services). This significant achievement resulted in helping the city more than double their live-result rate in just one year.

Our live release rate is 96.7%. In a shelter environment, it is impossible to have a 100% live release rate. Some pets arrive to us too injured or too ill for us to treat. And, as life takes course, some animals pass away of natural causes. In the end, the San Antonio Humane Society is charged with offering "humane treatment". We do that day-in and day-out.

Program 1

Humane Society Programs

The San Antonio Humane Society is an non-profit, no-kill organization that has served Bexar County and its surrounding areas since 1952. We are not affiliated with the Humane Society of the United States nor the ASPCA. Every year, we shelter, medically treat, and rehabilitate more than 5,000 pets that have been injured, abused, or abandoned until they are ready for adoption. As an adoption guarantee organization, we only euthanize pets that we are unable to treat, have a condition that poses a significant threat to the other pets in the shelter, or that have aggression issues.

Through our Adoption, Volunteer, Foster Care, and Humane Education programs, we educate the public on the importance of responsible pet ownership, micro-chipping, spaying, and neutering.

Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Self-reported by organization

  1. What is the organization aiming to accomplish?
    Our goals are to:

    1. Be sustainable
    2. Expand our services through the establishment of a veterinary hospital on our campus.
    3. Strengthen and expand external partnerships, in order to further address pet over-population issues in San Antonio.
    4. Strengthen our brand and remain as the "go to" shelter that offers innovative and exceptional services to those we serve.
    5. Educate the community about our challenges as a community and what each of us can do to address them.
  2. What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
    1. Build and maintain a sustainable funding program through a variety of means (e.g., grants, donations, sponsorships)
    2. Focus on educating children in areas where we can have the biggest impact.
    3. Generate awareness of the challenges facing our community.
    4. Continue to stay in front as a community leader addressing our challenges with animal over-population.
  3. What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
    We have a team of talented, experienced and dedicated leaders in the areas of veterinary medicine, animal welfare and care, adoption services, education, and communications. In addition, our volunteer program provides us the depth of staff required to achieve our goals.
  4. How will they know if they are making progress?
    1. City impact information, such as the number of stray animals on the streets of San Antonio
    2. Number of children educated by us about responsible pet ownership, the importance of spay and neuter and pet companionship
    3. Community awareness and access to our services
    4. Increase in number of animals adopted
    5. Live release rate
  5. What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
    While we have contributed significantly to the live release rate improvement at Animal Care Services (San Antonio), there remains a significant stray animal challenge in our community. We must continue to focus on the root cause of the problem, in order to see significant progress toward our vision. Community outreach is an essential ingredient toward that end.
